night. the president was trying to build on that momentum. trying to build on his advantage. talking about the agenda ahead. he was almost scolding them for damaging the economy and damaging america's reputation around the world. >> whil while at the same time saying there were no winners here. there was a cooperation and ahead. >> dif you do not like a particular policy or president then argue for his position. gpush to change it but don't break it. >> he chided them for brinksmanship and a manufactured crisis. and january 15th's it's a three month deal, tony.
he wilwe could be right back he. many republicans are voicing opinions on both sides if this brinksmanship continue. is the white house driving their agenda and beyond. >> that is what the president had in mind at the state ziening room. zien -- dining room. he languished about it. the first is immigration. and the center of all of the controversy over the past several months and that is the affordable care act known as obamacare. the president is pressing the house to arkt. -- act. the sen senate has already done. there is the nuts and boats of s of the farm bill. and can you imagine to sit down together. they did so this morning to hammer it out.
and signs of normalcy here at the white house when earlier today the president had a bilateral meeting with the leader of italy. and so things pretty much back to normal at this point. it could be temporary. and that is a big concern, tony. >> there is a one cabinet level job that needs to be filled, correct. >> janet dmvmen nap nap el tan . jay johnson has been dealing with military and defense here at the white house. and we expect the president to make the nomination formal at 2:00 tom. mike viqueira at the white house. let's go to capitol hill
now. libby casey is standing by. libby it's quiet there today. you could be in a cathedral. >> it's quiet here, tony. that is in sharp contrast with the rest of washington which had a revitalizhada revitalizezatio. and there is excitement about getting back to work. members are heading home and it's quiet for now. that doesn't mean that everyone is in relaxation mode. there is a lot of conversation about what happened last week. >> today the president laid out his agenda and a lot of items there. is there any reason to believe that congress will go along with any of it? >> democrats would like to hope so. tone is very important right now. we are not hearing a conciliatory tone come from democrats who are coming off the last couple of weeks wit with aa
lot of ways a win in their pocket. >> here is nancy pelosi the top democrat in the house talking to reporters today about republicans. >> with their tempe was their tm worth $24 billion? i don't think so. perhaps they didn't know how coastally it woulcostly is it w. costly -- costly it would be. >> listen to the language she uses. >> the temper tantrum. in terms of the electio legislae business. legislation reform is big business and it's up to republicans in terms of what they would like to do. if they see ited advantageous o their party. raoul labrador talked yesterday and said there is not a lot of intensive from republicans to
negotiate because they don't feel they were treated fairly in the last couple of weeks. that is his perspective and others are optimistic and do hope that can happen. the budget committee that is coming together in the next couple of weeks. a lot of focus on their efforts. we'll see republicans and democrats sitting down together. even if they come to the table, they come with a lot of differences. the two republicans that are spearheading this movement. those republicans paul ryan and senator session voted against re-opening the government. one more for you libby. we have heard many republicans say they planned to continue to fight the affordable care ability. act. have they indicated how they intend to do that? >> we'll probably see a couple of approaches. tesenator ted cruz said on abc news this morning that he will continue the fight to push back against obamacare. and he is willing to even look
at dealing with another shutdown situation. other republicans have said that is not their technique. the question is do they go big picture or do they do little picture and are trying to chip away at it. some republicans are saying let it lie or let it play itself out. they say it will cause enough problems on it's own without it pushing it over. libby casey on capitol hill. sovereignty resides with "we the people." >> in some ways it beginnings an --begins and ends with ted c. it was th the lock dobb lockdowe precursor to the shutdown. >> he said to me, ted, the single biggest obstacle i face
in my business is obamacare. >> it's after his side had lost promising not to get in the way of the final vote. i have no objections to the timing of this vote. >> some say it was a tactical blunder to cut off money for the obamacare act. >> it was a battle ground and one they were never going to win. >> rich is a long time g.o.p. zrat strastrategist. >> if they can find the right circumstances with a small percentage of voting population and the voting members of the house they can control the agenda. i'm not sure how many times you can do that? that. >> for tea party staa stalwartsy took precedence over party unity. >> they wanted this fight and they got it. the trouble of the republican party is there a huge portion of the rank and file and tea party
movement are hea happy that thet into this fight. >> can a party this fractured get anything down? >> i spoke to a congressman yesterday that said, look we are ungovernable. we can't send anyone to the table to negotiate in good faith because there is no belief they'll bring something back. >> what price will the g.o.p. pay in 2014. >> people will say the tea party members will go home and they will be pillaried and they don't know our system. they will be waving flag as they go by ch. >> president obama wants to refocus on immigration reform and he wants republicans and democrats to work together on the farm bill. with a congress this disfunctional it's hard to imagine that that will happen soon.
>> does the republican party need a make over. earlier today i spoke to tom davis about that and he is a former republican in virginia. >> they need to distance themselves from the debacle. the country doesn't like either party to be candid about it. in 2006 of being controlled they were fired and the democrats were put in and in 2008 they fired them from the presidency and in 2010 they swept the republicans back in to the control of the house of represent thivels and thereprest until to 12. to -- 2212. 2012. >> is it as bad as it appears looking in from the outside.
a disapproval for both chambers of goflt government this mornin. >> i think it's worse than they realize. we are institutionally right now. the democrats have 1.7 million more votes. but the republicans have a 17 seat lead. that is because they controlled the redistricting process. and the voting rights repacks voters and the way the electal college comes together the democrats have a structural advantage we are into a structural vision barring some weight of some kind. >> that is interesting. you have said, and you have quoatdebeen quoted in saying we have become a rural and southern party. for everyone watching this channel in america and around the world, explain that please. what iwhat it means, in politics
today. in local day most of the politics are national. 96% of the democrats are from obama district and 94% are from romney districts. people are voting strict particular iticketset cetera. tickets. they are voting their race and cultural preferences and their ethnicity. and in rural america, although the economic programs that the democrats appeal to, they don't want to volt fo vote for a teams laughing their lifestyle. >> it's great to talk to you. thank you for being on the program. across the country federal employees furloughed for 16 days are back to work. the workers also returned to federal offices in new york city. many say eyed the eyed said thee
back the federal workers and agencies are not the only ones impacted by the shutdown. i spoke to abdul baytops. >> i woke up this morning to shouts of joy and overall everyone is ecstatic to be back to work. >> do you have any estimate how much the shutdown has o cost yo? >> for our company we did an estimate, it was $120,000 a week. it's quite a lot for a business to b absorb if you are not prepared for it. >> your workers do not get back pay, correct? >> that is correct. that is the concern returns to work how they will be compensated for the days they missed for the furlough. >> are you concerned about a
second wave of furloughs when the congress gets back to work on this again in a few months? >> yes, i am. it's no use waiting until the last minute to strike a deal. this could happen again in january. i was listening to the broadcast of president obama and i hope everyone comes to gripple gripst at the table early. we need to get new people in office that we elect like like everybody else. >> the new information from edward snowden's document leaks shows how closely the cia works with the military. >> it's not clear when the intelligence started working with the cia.
ainchtaccording to the washingtn post" this relationship completely ramped up during 2009 and 2010. the first two years of the obama administration. in 2012 the collaboration acortding to th cording taccording to the deathn operative that was released to the pakistani. they released him and the u.s. felt that he was a threat, they weren't able to find him until nsa information uncovered an e-mail between him and his wife which helped pinpoint his location. what is notable about this is that the nsa has said they have always been in the business of tracking people that are not americans that are a threat to u.s. international security. a lot of the pu publicity in the
past year or so have focused on the efforts to gather information created produced and sent between american citizens and other persons. something that is controversial in this country. the nsa would say when contacted by these latest revelations that it's simply carrying out it's mission trailin trying to uncovd remove threats to national security. how about this, you are more likely to get cancer from air pollution than second hand smoke. that is accordings to th accordd health organization. zblrntion. >> this is the first time that r pollution in it's entirety has been named a cause of cancer.

>> so the government shutdown wiped 2 $24 billion off the economy according to the latest figures from s & p. we'll have a breakdown in a couple of minutes for you. >> there are other costs that may be a little harder to calculate. ali will be talking about this and more at the top of the hour on "real money." we have him on the program how did the shutdown hurt the economy. i will tell you where it didn't hurt. the s & p hit and all time high. it closed at and all time high.
the stocks are done very well. the s & p is up 22%. that is double the long terrorism average and it's only october. the shutdown probably cost us a half of a percentage point of gdp that is probably 25 or $30 billion. that is not the point. the point it's affected depends. and a economy that is run by people's decision about spending and business decisions as opposed to the government this is hard to quantify. because people won't get in and start deploying money to hire and expand their businesses because they don't know if we are going to go through this again. >> what does all of this uncertainty mean? we have some movement with january e-yellen coming in to the federal reserve. >> sure. >> but the fiscal side of this really seems to be a mess what does this fiscal uncertainty mean? >> it does give some certainty that for a couple of months the federal reserve is going to put
the $85 billion a month into the financial system which is keeping interest rates relatively low. for people that are borrowing and looking for a mortgage. what about 4 and a half percent and the interest rate staying there. i was talking to the chief economist for home builders and he said more than interest rates going up history has caused people to pull back on their decision to buy a home more than increasing interest rates do. there is a real he effect on the psyche. you don't think you have anything to do with the government. when the government messes around you feel did. >> this southbound a more coming up. >> absolutely. >> we have ali veshi at "real money. let's look at the impact on small businesses. >> natasha is in tampa, florida where several companies are on government contracts. i will talk to you natasha.
how are people there feeling? >> well, tony, they are relieved. the government contractors that we spoke to are exasperated. that is because they don't know if another government shutdown looms if congress can't meet their next deadline early next year. this company has lost tens of thousands of dollars and they are not alone. >> brian and greg were supposed to be in washington, d.c. on thursday meeting with the u.s. department of veterans affairs. it was their chance to pitch their telemedicine cart. it allows veterans to use their smart phones or tobacco let's to communicate with doctors remotely. they were to get a lucrative contract but due to the shutdown the meeting was cancelled. >> we hope to resurrect that and maybe not until next year but we'll keep fighting to go forward. rcht the way forward is uncertain for this small business. most of bhook and zurman's work
comes from government contracts. >> the va has developed a plan to ensure. >> it's a system that book is intimately familiar with. he is a disabled veteran and calls the system ant quited during the shutdown they were prohibited from working. still the company invested in equipment to meet the da's deadline. they also opted to continue paying their employees. it's money they won't get back. >> it's frustrating to look at the loss but we are resilient and we'll get back up and fighting again. >> we are not sure when it will be lifted. >> it could be a week before their employees can resume work on the va's call system upgrade they say it will be difficult to meet their deadline and they don't expect the government to give them a break. like a lot of other people they are upset. considering that congress didn't
meet their own deadline to meet the shutdown. >> our government spends a lot of time fixing the blame rather than fixing the problem. >> the looming question is whether they have to contend with a shut down early next year when congress has to meet their next set of deadlines. >> they are putting a band-aid on a festering weunld and we'll see what heaps at the end of the call letter year. >> a bit of good news shortly after our interview. the company received word from the va that they can get back to work, tony. >> but long terrorism here, how concerned about these businesses that the shutdown is not there. >> they are going to be not hiring any time soon. >> that makes sense.

about yesterday, is chris christie. if you look at 2016 the end game for the republicans, he as one of the luxuries of being a govenor didn't have to do anything for the shutdown. he didn't have to vote for or against it. he distanced himself from the people in his party who were so gung-ho about it. he can go into the primary states and say, listen, these fools and he can say that, because it's a political election. >> and he might say that. >> i think he can go in there and have a greater facility with that argument than he would have had otherwise. in a way he had nothing to do with it, but that might be why he is a win he were in this case. the losers are the republicans that are running against democrats who are in trouble in states like arkansas. mark prior we are a year away
from the republican election. >> do you want to rethink your one pick from yesterday. john boehner the speaker as a winner, do you want to rethink that? >> i don't think i had john boehner as a winner, i think i had mark o'rub bit. o'rubio as a winner he was in a tough place but he was a looser in the end. >> all right, michael i will go to the tape. let's talk about the mid terms a bit more next year. >> yeah. are we looking at the end of the tea party? and that is the basic. let me support it with this. is there a possibility that they might, that those tea party members may be able to reenergize their base and
ememerge from the primaries relatively unscathed. it die pens o depends on where e talking about actually. i think a lot of the tea party members of congress there are 30 to 60 of them. the ones that stotted in th stoy of the speaker, again i think we make too much of is this the end of the tea party. is there going to be a democratic wave? certainly there won't be a wave of democrats. congress is constructed now so that fewer of 15% of the races were in place. >> 63 out of 45 races were decided with less than 10%. what could happen is from the right in the republican party is you could have the soft o sort t we think of is conservative republicans and people that are sound fiscal conservative
